Welcome to Cherry Class

Hello Children,

Happy New Year to everyone, I am so looking forward to seeing you all for the new Spring Term!

Mrs Bath is your TA and when I am out of class on Thursday afternoon Mrs Bath and Miss Wilson will be teaching you. Our PE day is on Thursday, so it is an opportunity to get out in the fresh air and being healthy!







We are currently changing books on Monday and Friday, so please remember to bring in your book bags. Reading at home really supports learning in school, so try to read when you get the books if you can.

If you want more opportunities to read you can access books on It is free to access Ebooks appropriate to your child’s level or age. You just need to create a user name and password.




We will continue on our focus of building up the children’s phonics and spelling to plug any gaps from their time away from school last year. We will be looking at the story One Day on Our Blue Planet… in the Savannah by Ella Bailey. We will learn about non-fiction texts, learn about different sentence types, joining sentences and develop good vocabulary to do with the savannah. The children will also look at the poem ‘Beware’ by James Carter and learn about kenning poems.


In Maths we will be revisiting work on money and build on our knowledge on place value. We will also be looking at grouping and sharing and our times tables. We are learning our 2, 5 and 10 times table. If you know these already in order, you could practise them out of order to check you really know them. If you can do this have a go at your 3 and 4 times table.


We will be learning about local habitats and habitats around the world.


The children will be learning about making pictures in the style of Impressionism and learn the appropriate techniques to use software to achieve this. They will learn how to save their work and how to stay safe online.


We will be learning about how Jesus is a friend to everyone.


The children will learn about the continents and seas of the world. They will learn about our locale and compare it to London, as well as learn about places in Africa, Australia and China.


The children will learn about how places change over time. They will look at pictures of Halton in the past and now. They will also learn about Captain James Cook.


The children are learning fundamental movement skills, which include running and jumping and throwing and catching. 


The children will be learning about art from different cultures, for example, Africa, China and Australia.


The children will learn a banana rap and listen to different rhythms.


The children will do activities as part of Well-being Wednesday to address the issues we have in these current times and to have some time for reflection and fun. We will also be learning about bullying.
